+ “THE PURPLE CHEETAH” BIKE COLLABORATION WITH SOLÉ BICYCLES INSPIRED BY SOFI TUKKER’S HIT SONG “PURPLE HAT”
+ LIVE INTERACTIVE CONCERT AT YOOP eSPACE ON MARCH 12TH
+ REMIX OF TREVOR HALL’S “MORE THAN LOVE” OUT NOW
SOFI TUKKER’s remix of Lady Gaga’s hit single “911” from her album Chromatica is out today.
The duo’s adventurous take heightens the urgency of the original with a frenetic and ecstatic pace. “It’s an absolute honor to have worked on a Lady Gaga track. She’s an icon.,” says the group, “ Tuck went to her Little Monsters tour back in 2010 in Boston and it blew his mind. The coolest part of it all is the community that she has grown throughout the years and it was very cool for one of those little (very tall) monsters to get to remix her song. “ This is the second time their work meets as SOFI TUKKER’s single “Matadora” was featured in Lady Gaga’s Netflix documentary Five Foot Two previously.
The duo has also teamed up with Solé Bicycles to release “The Purple Cheetah,” a custom, limited-edition bicycle designed in collaboration and inspired by SOFI TUKKER’s hit song, “Purple Hat.” The co-branded bike features a two-tone white and purple frame, along with the highlight of the bike—never before seen matching cheetah print accents on the saddle and handlebar grip. It also features a yellow KMC bicycle chain, a nod to Tucker’s signature yellow choker necklace. “The Purple Cheetah” is available now here.
Following months of their daily livestream hybrid dj sets, which have consistently been in the Top 10 of Pollstar’s weekly chart of the most watched livestreams, SOFI TUKKER recently announced their first virtual full band performance, an interactive eConcert with Yoop. Due to COVID concerns the concert’s original December date has been moved to March 12th. The group will be debuting a brand new live set at the Yoop eSpace featuring unreleased songs. Yoop eConcerts facilitate live zero-lag visual and audio interactions and offer attendees the opportunity to join performers on-stage as part of the show. This first-of-its-kind experience is both mobile and desktop friendly and can be accessed via the Yoop app. Yoop launched the first Yoop eSpace in Montreal earlier this year, returning people to work by activating 2,300 music industry jobs. Visit www.yoop.app to learn more, download the app and see upcoming events. The app is also available via Apple Store or on Google Play.
SOFI TUKKER also recently released a remix of singer/songwriter Trevor Hall’s “more than love” from his new album IN AND THROUGH THE BODY. The group wrap the atmospheric and vulnerable original in a propulsive beat that heightens the desire in the track.
They say of working on the remix, “Trevor made just the most beautiful song and we’re so excited to have gotten to put our spin on it. We really wanted to keep the beauty and emotional resonance of the original and we love how it came out. “
SOFI TUKKER’s latest single “Spa” is a collaboration with fellow globally chart-topping duo Icona Pop, out now via RECORD COMPANY TEN/Ultra Music. The playfully hedonistic anthem of self-love and self-care has an equally flirtatious spa treatment themed video co-starring actor Jordan Firstman and transgressive multi-hyphenate Mia Khalifa.
